Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Vic... the way we are and trash talk each other you would never think we have been together for 28 years . This is what keeps us fresh and happy but also helps through tough times.... Life is never easy as you already know.


Wednesday morning..... so yesterday i was in pain all day from the BBJO and the twisting movement on the box, surprisingly I slept really well and did not wake up from any pain. Wife slept somewhat good but in a great mood this morning.


Plan – STRICT push and pull



Warm up
60 cal row
Extensive resistance band shoulder warm up
PVC pipe work
Strict push presses to get used to some weight.

20min or so



Strict Push

Wife – 3 x box holds x 20 seconds + 7 or so wall walks with 10 seconds hold at top
Myself - 20 strict HSPU for time = 5:19

Wife was pleased with her position today and found it easier than last time. I was pleased with my HSPU, no failures and i know i can push this.



Strict Pull
U go I go – 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4, until failure

Wife – assisted pull ups = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9+5 = 50 reps
Myself – close grip V-bar pull ups, 2 second pause at bottom = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7+6 = 33reps

Wife was sharp today and blew me away, to tough for me today.



Strict Pull
U go I go – 10, 9, 8 … 1
DB row lying flat on bench

Wife – 10kgs/22lbs
Myself – 22kgs/49lbs

Great muscle contact today, felt good



Strict Push
U go I go – 10, 9, 8 … 1
DB bench press

Wife – 12kgs/26lbs
Myself – 22kgs/49lbs

The weight felt a little heavy at the start but then it felt light. Wife had no issues either



Strict Push
1 set unbroken - Push Ups

Myself – 36 reps
Wife did not try this today

I was pleased with that, last 6 reps were tough.



Cool down
all round stretch for 20min

enjoyed it today, great focus

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Thursday morning and feeling really good. I went to bed early and that extra sleep makes a lot of difference. No wife today as she decided to work form home so i am all by myself.

Plan - this is going to suck



Warm up
60 cals on the rower
band work on shoulders
some light mobility

warm up with the movements from the first part



This is going to suck

2km Row for time

but @ the same time E2MOM

Power clean and jerk @ 61kgs/135lbs + 1 rep E2M, first C&J starts when the clock starts at zero.

Result = 13.50 (total C&J 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 = 28reps)


So that really sucked, the C&J take time as i went singles. Kept an even pace on the rower of around 2.05. All in all this was a good tester.



2km Ski-erg for time

but @ the same time E2MOM

5 KB swings (American) @ 24kgs/53lbs First KBs start when the clock starts at zero.

Result = 10.26 (total KB swings = 30reps)


This was tough as i was already tired after the first part. I was hoping for under 10min for this but i came up 50m short which meant i had to complete 5Kb and the final 50m that took me 26 seconds past the 10min mark. I wish now that i had pushed just a little harder earlier and i would have reached my goal.

About 10min after this i got cramp in my left calf , i think this is due to the activation or lack of it due to the problem with my left knee. Have to work on this later today.



Cool down
Clean up and stretch for 20min

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

At last Friday morning ��. I am feeling great, I can still feel my left calf after the cramp yesterday but this will be taken care of after working out with a massage. Wife went to bed late and boy she was tired this morning, I didn’t feel sorry for her this time.

Plan – Long EMOM



Warm up
As we set everything up for the plan we proceeded to warm up with the movements and stretch a little.
Always shoulder warm up
Double checked the rep counts during the warm up

30min I would say before we were ready



36 EMOM (6x6min)
So this is not a full on 100% WOD this is designed to vary the load and rest over a longer time domain.
The intensity increases at first and then de-loads on the 4th movement only to increase again at the end.

Min 1-6 = 7/5 - calories Ski-erg
Min 7-12 = 10 - T2Rings/Ring High knees
Min 13-18 = 10 - Wallballs 9/6kg
Min 19-24 = 8/6 - Push ups
Min 25-30 = 10 - DB snatches 22/9kgs
Min 31-36 = 4 - Medball G2OS 40/22kg

This got the heart rate up today and I was happy for the push ups, the DB snatch got the heart rate up and the final medball sucked. A couple of times I wanted to take an extra break but the wife was ready to go even if she was also tired. Pulled through it together and we were both pleased when it was over.



Cool down
Clean up our crap after catching our breath for 5min or so.
Stretch for 20min after than and sweat a lot


A great end to another great week

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Monday morning and it is that time again weekend was good, we both had time to rest and take it easy. Did a couple of long walks as the weather was great outside. Both a little after Friday's workout, more than we both expected.

Plan - Heavy under 2 time domains



Warm up
1km row
band and pipe work
more mobility

warm up with movements to come

30min i would say.



Heavy

Time domain 1 = 5 x 3reps TnGo Deadlifts - 20min time cap
Start at whatever weight we wanted to but the weight must increase on every set after that.

Wife = 55, 65, 70, 75, 80kgs/176lbs (84% for 3)
Myself = 110, 120, 130, 140, 150kgs/330lbs (83% for 3)


Wife was solid and stong on these today. in June last year she did 75kgs for 5 but today she was also pressed for time and increase the weight. her goal os 100kgs/220lbs this year.

Myself, these felt great today and 150kgs was not a problem. June last year i did 135kgs max for 3 reps but today i felt strong. i have been peaking the past 4 weeks now.



Time domain 2 = 5 x 1 reps Snatch - 30min time cap
Start where you want and increase

Wife - 28, 28, 28, 28, 28kgs/62lbs (90% of 1RM)
Myself - 60, 68, 75kgs/165lbs (97% of 1 RM) 80kgs/FF + extra lifts FFF


Wife did well even if her shoulder was giving her problems. Her lifts were not as vertical as they should have been, she had a large ark in the second pull and that rotation, with the effort required to stop the bar going behind her head put pressure on her shoulder. I Think that she gets this problem when the bar is to light for her, she will muscle it up rather than trust her technique. I did not get involved in her lifts today, i left it to her.


Myself - a friend at the gym who is a great lifter asked me before we started the deadlift if we were going to snatch today... i said yes and his face just lit up , he wanted to lift With me today. the only difference was that he had more time to warm up and start at a good weight compared to me. He really push me and the time domain, i think we were done in 25min for both of us. He made 85kgs look easy, my best lifts were on the extra attempts 4&5, i had the bar above my head but did not have fully pocked arms. i was really pleased with those PR attempts today.



Cool down
15 min stretch after cleaning up

Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Tuesday morning and a little tired, wife slept really well but would have loved to be able to sleep an extra hour but thats a big no no .

Plan - partner



Warm up
1km row
Shoulder band work and pipe work

Set up everything and warm up With those movements.

25-30min i would say



Partner

300 cal Assault Bike for time

+ every time we alternate on the bike = Penalty

1 = 5 Pull ups/ring pulls
2 = 5 Burpees
3 = 5 KB swings (American) 24/16kgs 53/35lbs
4 = 5 T2B/T2 rings

Result = 27.33

So it worked like this: Every time we alternated we had a penalty of 5 reps of a movement. The movements were completed as U go I go in the order of 1,2,3 and 4. So the penalty is nothing special but enough to mess with you a little.

I started on bike, wife 5 ring pulls...
wife on bike, myself 5 pull ups...
myself on bike, wife 5 burpees
wife on bike, myself 5 burpees

and so on and so on. We just kept alternating like that until we were done with the 300 cals. When we were done we had completed 2 full rounds of penalties and 1 round of ring pulls/pull ups.

On the AAB we kept the speed even the whole time (good pacing), wife averaged 58 RPM and myself 68 RPM. First couple of rounds the wife completed 10 and myself 15 cals but we then increased to around 15 and 20 cals. No lactric acid build up, just below that.

Wife did T2 Rings and did reallt well.

Cool down
Clean up our crap
20min stretch

enjoyed this today
